The house may contain part of an earlier C19 building on the site but nothing is visible. Entrance front of 3 storeys and basement, 13 windows. Centre and ends project. Red brick with stone quoins, bands, window architraves and balustraded parapet. Sash windows with glazing bars. Central doorcase has Corinthian entablature with serpentine open pediment. Balustrades to basement areas. Between each outer pair of ground floor winders a classical statue on plinth. Similar north front with stone urns crowning low wall; and a classical figure group on plinth at west end. Inside, along the north front a handsome suite of inter-connecting reception rooms with classical detail. Some panels of Chinese wall-paper mounted in control room; and painted decoration said to be by Rex Whistler in the end rooms. Also a fine entrance hall and staircase. Sir Philip Sassoon entertained the Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII) and Sir Winston Churchill at this house.
